Tim and Matty Playing For Loan Clubs

Good news coming from the north where our 19 year-old Dutch goalkeeper, Tim Krul, on loan at at Falkirk has made it 3 wins in a row on Saturday, with a 2-1 victory at home to Heart of Midlothian.


Tim Krul – good run at loan club Falkirk

That run leaves the Bairns in seventh position in the 12 club Scottish Premier League, with 28 points from their 20 games so far this season. They are now just a single point off fourth-placed Dundee United.

One of our other loan players, South African Matty Pattison, also played the full 90 minutes as Norwich City extended their unbeaten run to six matches following a 1-1 draw with Wolves at Carrow Road. The Canaries are now two places clear of the Championship drop zone and Glenn Roeder and Lee Clark have made a good start in East Anglia.

They now have 27 points from 25 games, but are still just 2 points above the drop zone. Colchester, Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday are the current 3 bottom teams. Which reminds us that Andrew Carroll was again not involved in the Preston North End squad for their 2-1 defeat against Cardiff at Deepdale on Saturday.

Andrew has made only 7 appearances for Preston while on loan, scoring just one goal, and is due to return to Newcastle this week, where he is likely to be sent out on loan again. He may be going to Motherwell, of the Scottish Premier league, but whichever club he joins he must get more games than he got at Preston.

Comments welcome.

    Can I just say a well done to Glenn Roeder for (without wanting to bring a curse on them by saying it) getting Norwich out of the quagmire they were in! Looks like he will actually save a team from going down this time!
    Also, Krul looks a star buy for us! He really is going to be one for future, and I think he may actually be a rightful successor to Shay’s crown.

    Yeah Steeley – One position Newcastle don’t have to worry about for the next 10 years is the goalkeeping position 🙂

    i agree with congratulations for roeder but he did the same thing in his first season with us and hammers and then he seemed to have a second season syndrome with every club. hope he does well with the canaries
